The world-famous novel of ancient times, Ben Hur: A Tale of the Christ, was written by Lew Wallace, who grew up in the early 1800s roaming the fields and streams of Indiana. Young readers will meet the renowned author as a child whose daring exploits, coupled with a deep religious faith, foreshadowed the Civil War general, governor of the New Mexico Territory, United States ambassador, and author he would become. Children will delight in young Lew’s rescue of his brother from a runaway carriage, feel a kinship with the boy and his passion for art as he draws portraits of his schoolmates with his “magic pencil,” and share his fascination for the exotic places he reads about in the books he loves. Action-packed illustrations enhance a fascinating story that will draw kids into the life of the young country boy who grew up to write one of the best-loved Christian novels ever penned.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

1 Chapter 1 Little Hero “ W ake up, my little dreamer!” A tall woman knelt beside her young son, asleep in a trundle bed. “Wake up,” she whispered again. It was early, earlier than her son usually woke up. The boy stirred slightly. He felt her hand gently brushing back his hair. “Come, Lewis, get up! We are moving today!” His dark eyes opened wide, and he sat up sud- denly. Now he remembered his father had said they would be going with the big, white-topped wagons this trip! Lewis Wallace liked to watch the wagon trains as they came rumbling through their town, Brookville, Indiana, on the road leading west. Sometimes they stopped at his grandfather’s inn. “Are we going in a wagon?” Lewis asked.
